A Russell County resident was one of nineteen law enforcement dispatchers graduated Friday from the Public Safety Dispatch Academy at the Kentucky Department of Criminal Justice Training.
WJRS would like to congratulate Elizabeth E. Bennett from Russell County Dispatch on being one of the graduates.
The graduates hail from communications centers across the state, and comprise DOCJT’s 130th telecommunications academy class, which first began in 1999.
The students graduating from the Public Safety Dispatch Academy represent the successful completion of a highly structured and comprehensive curriculum. The four weeks of training consisted of 164 hours of academy instruction to satisfy mandated training requirements.
Major training areas included identifying the role and responsibilities of the dispatcher, correct phone and radio procedures, handling emergency and non-emergency calls for service, emergency medical dispatch protocols and use of the state and national criminal databases.
